We think we might have decided on Isaac as our boys name but I am now naturally over thinking it! Does it sound too much like 'I suck'?

It's a beautiful name. I liked it a lot for ds but dh didn't.

I would definitely use it.

It doesn't sound anything like "I suck" grin

I have an Isaac and that never occurred to me. The vicar did pronounce it as I-Sack when he was christened though. hmm

It has a lovely meaning, a cool historical namesake and a couple of nice nicknames. But you won't believe how much trouble people have spelling a fairly popular five-letter name - it can get quite annoying after a while!

It's a lovely name.

ClementineandLilac Tue 20-Nov-12 12:27:22

Beautiful.....I pronounce it I that correct?

Ummofumbridge Tue 20-Nov-12 12:34:52

I love it.

chaya5738 Tue 20-Nov-12 14:47:34

I love it

Rhubarbgarden Tue 20-Nov-12 15:20:29

I don't like it, personally. I think it's the double 'A'.

WheresMyCow Tue 20-Nov-12 15:27:31

I love it, but them I'm biased as I have an Isaac too. grin

And yes, people do have trouble spelling it sometimes - they always want to put a double S in it.

Exactly the same as cow

Thank u for reassuring me! We love it, and finally agree on a name so I think my husband would have gone mad if I had talked myself out of it! Isaac it is, now just got to hope he arrives on time- i do not want to be overdue on Christmas day...

It's lovely. I don't think it sounds like I-suck

As long as your surname isn't Hunt it's a good solid choice smile

I love Isaac.

DD1 goes to school with a kind, beautiful little Isaac.

It means 'the one who laughs'

Go for it!

Ooh, Molotov, I had no idea your daughter was in the same class as my son! grin

I don't know how anyone couldn't like the name. It's in my top 3 (well, 4, boys name) which are:


Off subject, sorry OP, but too darn good not to share wink

I have a Isaac so I love it and it has never crossed my mind that it sounds like I-suck.
The most annoying thing is when people pronounce it izach.

It's still a fairly unusual name and I have only recently come across another one and that's in the last 7 years!!!

ConfusedandBemused Wed 21-Nov-12 21:02:04

Caz05 I would pronounce it izach.....what is the proper pronounciation? Izik?
